BAD Agility in Maryland – Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
« on: November 24, 2014, 01:36:03 PM »

What a wonderful awesome trial we had at the Breakaway Action Dog (BAD) of Maryland’s November games trial this past weekend.  I wanted to say THANK YOU to all the exhibitors who came with great attitudes and positive spirits for having a great and glorious weekend.  THANKS also for all the help you offered up with working classes, helping with the course changes and hauling sandbags.  This trial was a huge success because of all you wonderful exhibitors.   I can’t say enough about how much fun this trial was, the cheering, the newbies of which there were many either competing at their first trial ever or still very new, the relaxed atmosphere of the trial environment, the good weather, the good food, the fun, the teamwork among the handlers and their dogs.  I think it was my favorite trial of the year.  Thank you all for coming, for coming back and trying the new flooring, which was awesome to run on and the dogs loved it and the handlers did too.

We also had a great judge, Rachelle Jenson who came with great courses and an awesome attitude.  She will be back again on the east coast, we loved her spirit, attitude and her courses.  She was a joy to work with, thanks for helping make this trial so great and fun.

We had several newbies who came out and had a ton of fun and lots of good times.  Thanks to everyone who came out and supported BAD.  Hope everyone had as much fun as I did.  Hope to see you all for our next trials, which will be games only (TN; TG; WV), in our Frederick building with our NEW flooring.  Premiums with be out soon for our January and February trials, need to update them to add INTRO to those trials.  So if you want to try intro, come play with us at those trials.  Check our website for premiums for our upcoming trials at: .

Thanks to you, Jean, and all the BAD members.  It was a great trial.  The new flooring is a big improvement both for the dogs and us humans.  Hope to see you all again soon.
